    I have been working at Nemours Children's Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They genuinely care for their employees. The pay is above average for the location. They provide food and many fun events for employees. This health system truly cares about the overall well being of their employees while providing a fun environment to work in. They love to recognize job well done and give their employees to recognize each other as well. I love working here.

    Cons

    The new system required for updating throughout the year using performance management makes it difficult for yearly bonuses or raises if one forgets to do them. The employees need to stay on top of it to receive the highest amount of raise offered.

    I have been working at Nemours Children's Health System full-time

    Pros

    Zero Pros to working here

    Cons

    Executive staff feels they're entitled to the free labor of the healthcare workers. Just been told we won't be paid and forced to use PTO if we have it during the shutdown period. All the support and executive staff will be paid because they can work from home. If the hospital is shut down what work is there to do that entitles these people to continue collecting a paycheck? One this is clear Larry Moss and Co. only care about one thing and that is the bottom line and their bonuses. Would never recommend anyone working here or having children come here for care.

    Nemours Children's Health System Response

    March 26, 2020

    We stand with our associates and their families during the current COVID-19 crisis. Associates who exhaust their PTO bank, as well as any legacy EL they may have, due to a COVID-19 absence (COVID-19 related illness, quarantine, site closure, lack of opportunity for redeployment to another site) will not go without pay at this time. We will continue to pay them at their regular rate of pay for up to two weeks beyond the depletion of their PTO bank.
